Demo Derby – 1978 Allegan County Fair

photo365 – Day 225

The key to winning these things is to lead with your butt. Driving straight into your opponent damages the engine/radiator of your car and can quickly disable you.

The monster station wagons of the 70’s, all 19 feet of them weighing in at ~5,000 lbs and sporting 440 cubic inch V8s (that’s over 7L for you kids), were the kings of this event.
